“unbelievably great”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

This was the highlight of our trip to central Florida. The best strawberry shortcake known to man. Very inexpensive and a huge single serving. Very cool "mom and pop" type of stop that should be on everyones things to see and do list. I can't say enough about how much me and my family enjoyed this stop on our trip! Thank you Parkesdale family!

“First place we take visitors to Florida”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

I love, love, love this place - best strawberry milkshakes ever for $1.00, superb produce for good prices too. We winter in Florida in Tampa and bring all of our visitors here. It's fun to have take pictures of everyone dressed up as strawberry king and queen and like to look at the world map to see where everyone is from who visits there - even Presidents Bush and Obama have been there. Beautiful plants for sale too.

“Great little side stop ”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

Great little side stop with the family. The strawberry milk shakes are really really good. And since my dad owns an ice cream shop I think I have a little bit of perspective on this. Also the strawberry shortcake is really good. Don't be intimidated by the long line because it moved very fast.

“The real deal!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Come to this small farm market and stand in line drooling for their perfect strawberry milkshakes (voted #1 on Food Network), or the enormous strawberry shortcakes served January- April. Sit outside but underneath a roof, in an area filled with so much kitschy fun: strawberry facts, pictures of presidents who've visited, lots of red shiny bling and a huge strawberry hull that you can sit in and have your picture taken with royal props (be the King or Queen of Strawberries)! As an aside this is a real farm market with beautiful looking vegetables. You can also buy their homemade strawberry bread, cookies, and jam. This is unassuming but don't miss it!

“We Love Coming Here”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We come here at least once during strawberry season. The strawberries are great but also the farmer's market & nursery sections are just as wonderful.
